There is growing media speculation that Barcelona are close to signing Brazilian starlet Neymar and while this has been refuted by his current club Santos, there is even more speculation about a move to Real Madrid.
In June, the player's agent claimed that a deal transferring Neymar to Real Madrid was close. A few weeks later, Santos president Luis Alvaro de Oliveira Ribeiro admitted that Real had agreed to meet Neymar's €45 million release clause.
Speaking to journalists, Brazil legend Luis Ronaldo advised Neymar to join Madrid saying, "Both options [Real Madrid and Barcelona] are great, but I still hope he goes to Real Madrid, where I spent five years. I think it would be better for him."
